(Reuters) - Wasps will play in the Premiership final against Exeter Chiefs after they were given the all-clear following the latest round of COVID-19 tests, Premiership Rugby said on Wednesday.

Wasps' participation in Saturday's final at Twickenham was in doubt after they recorded 11 COVID-19 positives in two rounds of testing since last week.

"Premiership Rugby can confirm that Wasps have been given the all-clear to take their rightful place in the Premiership Rugby final against Exeter Chiefs," it said in a statement.
